CDC: 5 million kids used tobacco products in 2018

  • Number of US teens using e-cigarettes surges to 5m in one year – study

For decades, the percentage of high school and middle school students who smoked cigarettes had been declining fairly steadily.

"We're creating a new generation of youth and adolescents that have an addiction to nicotine products."

"This increase-driven by a surge in e-cigarette use-erased past progress in reducing youth tobacco product use", the CDC said.

According to Dr. Eddy Lang with the Canadian Taskforce for Preventative Healthcare, teen use of e-cigarettes is skyrocketing. Also, about 28 percent of high school e-cigarette users said they vaped 20 or more days in the previous month - almost a 40 percent jump from the previous year.

"I think the writing is on the wall", with research increasingly suggesting e-cigarettes are becoming a gateway to regular cigarettes, said Megan Roberts, an Ohio State University researcher. Other concerns include tobacco use affecting brain development and impacting learning, memory and attention.

E-cigarettes are generally considered better than cigarettes for adults who are already addicted to nicotine.

The CDC explained that there were no changes in the use of tobacco products except for those who were using e-cigarettes. The products resemble computer flash drives, can be recharged in USB ports and can be used discreetly - including in school bathrooms and even in classrooms. She added that the company shares in the FDA's concerns about teenagers using e-cigarettes.

"JUUL also has a high nicotine content, among the highest of any e-cigarette on the United States market", King continued.

It's illegal for minors to buy and smoke e-cigarettes, but Health Canada reported in 2017 that almost one-quarter of all teenagers in Canada have tried it.

It's also taking a look at whether flavours of e-cigarette juice should be sold in the country. Men also used tobacco products more frequently than women.

And many kids don't limit themselves to one type of tobacco product, the CDC found.

In all, CDC researchers found that more than 27 percent of all high schoolers and more than 7 percent of middle school students reported using tobacco. The most commonly used tobacco product combination was e-cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes among both middle and high school students.

The US Food and Drug Administration is cracking down on e-cigarette marketing and sales aimed at teens, but more needs to be done, said Thomas Ylioja, clinical director of health initiatives at National Jewish Health in Denver. "... Youth use of any tobacco product, including e-cigarettes, is unsafe".

"Legislators and policy-makers are responding, but we need rapid action to ban advertising to youth including through social media outlets, restrict purchases including online, raise the age of purchasing nicotine products to 21, ban vaping in places where tobacco is prohibited, and ensure that nicotine vaping products are taxed like other tobacco products", he continued.
